Cookies Made With LOVE
Let's face it, our work as Moms is not appreciated enough most of the time. I have tried to remedy this lacking by instituting the use of certain phrases that must be used in order to receive a desired item. The best example of this is when I make my chocolate chip cookies I need to hear: "Mom, can I have a cookie because they are made with love?" Call it a tradition, a request, a household run by a monarchy...whatever. It gets me what I need.
So here's the thing, I was making these cookies today ...I could make them in my sleep I have made them so many times, this household does not function well without them...I make them with brown eggs from my Dad's chickens and I swear it makes a difference....I digress....So my little one looks up and says with his little 4yr. old perfectly pouty mouth: "Mom, I think you are wrong about the love." Ok, there are two things here: 1). he knows that Moms can be wrong and 2). he doesn't think my cookies are made with love!. I am trying to not look hurt. And then he says:"I don't think the love is from you, I think it's from the kids." My heart melts like butter!
